This morning the Supreme Court announced that on Monday at 10:00 a.m., it will be handing down its decisions in the Arias and Amalgamated cases, which were argued in early April. These cases address, among other issues, whether formal class certification is required in PAGA and UCL actions (post-Prop. 64) in which relief is sought on behalf of others. Amalgamated may also address whether associational standing survived Prop. 64.
See this blog post for the statements of the issues and links to the Court of Appeal opinions. Reports on the oral arguments are available here and here. When the decisions are posted, they will be avialable at these links:
